How to prevent subtask creation/issue creation using scriptrunner ?

Hi Team,

i need help for few of my questions and if its possible then how to implement them .

In JIRA workflow for my client ,i have created grrovy script that creates subtask when parent issue is created but now i wanted to add some constraints when a manual subtask is being created for a parent issue.

1. if autocreated subtask exists with same summary then manually new subtask  should not be created.

2. if my parent issue is makred to done then also it should not allow to create a new subtask manually.

3. parent issue is marked to done, once all subtasks are done then subtasks should not be allowd to move into other status even if transition from done to inprogress does exist.

 

Kinldy provide some code or scripts that can help me achiving above mentioned points.

No pluggings plz

1.  Create a scripted validator that looks up to the parent issue, iterates over existing subtasks, and if it finds one with the new summary, fails validation

2.  You could build this into the same validator as 1 - an extra line to say "or parent status == done"

3. That's a condition, but similar to point 2.

The code for 3 to get you started:

  if ("Done".equals(issue.getParentObject().getStatus) ) { return false }

Issue sourceIssue = issue.getParentObject()
log.info "getParentObject :" + sourceIssue.getIssueType().getName()

//collecting AutoCreated subtask object
Collection allsubtasks = sourceIssue.getSubTaskObjects()

 

def Pdata = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Please select the required sub-task")
LazyLoadedOption PdataField =(LazyLoadedOption) issue.getCustomFieldValue(Pdata)
def valueOfPdata = PdataField?.getValue()

if(issue.getParentObject().getStatus().getName()=='Done'){

code or validator should not create a subtask ???HOW??

   
}else{
   for(Issue allsubtask: allsubtasks) {
            NFRsubtaskSummary=allsubtask.getSummary()
           
                if (NFRsubtaskSummary== valueOfPdata)   {
     childissue.setSummary('Duplicate of '+NFRsubtaskSummary +'- Please Delete')   
      if (valueOfPdata == 'School')  {   
                     region.updateValue(null, childissue, new ModifiedValue(childissue.getCustomFieldValue(region), regionFieldValue.toString()),changeHolder)        
                     childPhase.updateValue(null, childissue, new ModifiedValue(childissue.getCustomFieldValue(childPhase), Inception.toString()),changeHolder)           
                     childHostCountry.updateValue(null, childissue, new ModifiedValue(childissue.getCustomFieldValue(childHostCountry), hostCountryFieldValue.toString()),changeHolder)        
                     }
                    break
    }else{

if (valueOfPdata == 'Home') {
childissue.setAssigneeId(user.name)
childissue.setReporterId(user.name)   
childissue.setSummary('Home')   
region.updateValue(null, childissue, new ModifiedValue(childissue.getCustomFieldValue(region), regionFieldValue.toString()),changeHolder)        
childPhase.updateValue(null, childissue, new ModifiedValue(childissue.getCustomFieldValue(childPhase),Construction.toString()),changeHolder)           
childHostCountry.updateValue(null, childissue, new ModifiedValue(childissue.getCustomFieldValue(childHostCountry), hostCountryFieldValue.toString()),changeHolder)        
}

 

This is the code i wrote , but i am not able to add or find some code/logic that helps not to create subtask

I think you've answered your own question.

In your code you have:

if(issue.getParentObject().getStatus().getName()=='Done'){

code or validator should not create a subtask ???HOW??

}else ...

You literally do nothing in that code block.  Creating a sub-task requires code.  If you don't want a sub-task, do nothing at that point.

Issue sourceIssue = issue.getParentObject()
log.info "getParentObject :" + sourceIssue.getIssueType().getName()

//collecting AutoCreated subtask object
Collection allsubtasks = sourceIssue.getSubTaskObjects()

 

def Pdata = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Please select the required sub-task")
LazyLoadedOption PdataField =(LazyLoadedOption) issue.getCustomFieldValue(Pdata)
def valueOfPdata = PdataField?.getValue()

if(issue.getParentObject().getStatus().getName()=='Done'){

code or validator should not create a subtask ???HOW??

   
}else{
   for(Issue allsubtask: allsubtasks) {
            NFRsubtaskSummary=allsubtask.getSummary()
           
                if (NFRsubtaskSummary== valueOfPdata)   {
     childissue.setSummary('Duplicate of '+NFRsubtaskSummary +'- Please Delete')   
      if (valueOfPdata == 'School')  {   
                     region.updateValue(null, childissue, new ModifiedValue(childissue.getCustomFieldValue(region), regionFieldValue.toString()),changeHolder)        
                     childPhase.updateValue(null, childissue, new ModifiedValue(childissue.getCustomFieldValue(childPhase), Inception.toString()),changeHolder)           
                     childHostCountry.updateValue(null, childissue, new ModifiedValue(childissue.getCustomFieldValue(childHostCountry), hostCountryFieldValue.toString()),changeHolder)        
                     }
                    break
    }else{

if (valueOfPdata == 'Home') {
childissue.setAssigneeId(user.name)
childissue.setReporterId(user.name)   
childissue.setSummary('Home')   
region.updateValue(null, childissue, new ModifiedValue(childissue.getCustomFieldValue(region), regionFieldValue.toString()),changeHolder)        
childPhase.updateValue(null, childissue, new ModifiedValue(childissue.getCustomFieldValue(childPhase),Construction.toString()),changeHolder)           
childHostCountry.updateValue(null, childissue, new ModifiedValue(childissue.getCustomFieldValue(childHostCountry), hostCountryFieldValue.toString()),changeHolder)        
}

When you return false, you block creating the subtask =) Because returning false tells the validation that the user shall not pass.

With assumption that you have chosen Simple scripted validator option
